The UEFA Cup was formerly the Cup Winners Cup, which Was Formerly the Inter City Fairs cup.
It is undergoing yet another restructuring into what will be known as the UEFA Europa League Next season.
As in all its various guises it has completey different qualifying criteria, each one has been a completely different competition.
To be technically correct, the European Cup, and the UCL are totally different competitions with different formats, but try telling that to a Liverpool, Forest or Villa fan
I do agree with this statement and saying that we are 12-0 over Liverpool in the Premier League and 2-1 over them in the Champions League is disrespecting to the past and specially Matt Busby himself.Mark Moran wrote: That was some shite made up by United fans in a vain attempt to try and defuse the Scousers argument that they have been champions of Europe five times to our three. To be quite frank, it's f*cking embarassing that they would do this too. Simple fact is the European Cup changed it's format and at the same time they changed the name to sound a lot more commercially viable. It's the same competition and we trail Liverpool by 5-3, we have to catch them and not come up with this shite that it's a different competition.
It's like saying we are 11-0 in front in the Premier League. Though this might be a fact, it's a rather hollow and shallow way to get one over on the Scousers. It's 18-18, simple as.
For some reason I still cannot update the OP. Maybe there is time limit on how for how long post can be edited. Considering that some forums have that you can edit post unlimited I think perhaps that would be the solution in mean time I was able to qoute op and edit what I qouted form the op.
